Attempting to find out some more details on Bicycle NSW’s Big Ride; details like when the bus transport from Sydney to the start leaves, where it leaves from, and how on earth someone from interstate is meant to get themselves, their bike and their baggage to this place. They haven’t answered email enquiries so I rang. Fun and games — the bus leaves at 06:00 in the morning — so a night’s accommodation is required — and from somewhere that has no public transport access! “Most people get driven there.” Then BNSW suggested I catch a taxi, but in the past I’ve found that a bike box won’t fit in any of the taxis in Sydney, since they’ve all got LPG tanks in the boot, and the station-wagons have mesh gratings bolted across the luggage space!
